Abstract:

The purpose of this paper is to quantify the contribution of economic development to observed fertility decline, with specific reference to the recent experience of Indonesia, Japan, Korea, and Thailand. Economic development is conceived as including such factors as education, urbanization, and child mortality, in addition to income itself. The analysis proceeds in two stages. In the first, recent rates of fertility decline in the four countries are compared to those generated by a system of equations fitted to a cross-section of the world's nations as of 1970. Whereas the equation system provides a plausible account of fertility reduction on a worldwide average, it accounts for only one-third to one-half of that observed in the Asian countries under study. In the second stage of the study, fertility change is analyzed using survey data from Korea and Thailand. Although the results indicate a clear association between fertility decline and development factors, again, one-half to two-thirds of the fertility reduction must be attributed to something beyond economic development, even taken in its widest sense.
